Adding a new adxRibbonGroup is default tab (possible?)
Can I add a new group into a outlook default tab?

Is it possible to add a adxRibbonGroup to a current default Outlook Tab, for example in the [Message Tab] when composing a message?

Regards

Hello Mervin,

Yes, this is possible. Below is a citation from the manual:

Add-in Express Ribbon components provide the IdMso property; if you leave it empty the component will create a custom Ribbon control. To refer to a built-in Ribbon control, you set the IdMso property of the component to the ID of the built-in Ribbon control. For instance, you can add a custom Ribbon group to a built-in tab. To do this, you put a Ribbon tab component onto the add-in module and set its IdMso to the ID of the required built-in Ribbon tab. Then you add your custom group to the tab and populate it with controls. Note that the Ribbon does not allow adding a custom control to a built-in Ribbon group.


The Id of the Message tab is "TabNewMailMessage".
